Dr. Gelber is Associate Professor of Medicine and Director of the ACGME-accredited Rheumatology Fellowship Program. His primary commitment is to provide postdoctoral fellows with the structured environment and formal opportunities to obtain methodologic training in clinical and basic investigation necessary to initiate successful academic careers. He is responsible for the oversight of fellow performance in these venues, and formal evaluation of research progress and academic advancement.
Dr. Gelber’s investigative pursuits began with an initial focus on modifiable risk factors for incident osteoarthritis. He has since utilized his epidemiologic skills across a spectrum of the rheumatic disorders, including participating in the Division of Rheumatology’s translational research focus across several disease-specific centers, including ongoing projects which address novel autoantibodies, related phenotypic profiles and predictors of outcome in scleroderma, Sjogren’s syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis and myositis. An emerging research focus addresses risk factors for prevalent and incident gout in the community-based setting.
